Seminar: Exploring digital PCR

October 22, 2015 @ 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Speaker: Karen Hiza

thermo-fisher-scientific

Digital PCR extends the performance of existing TaqMan® Assays, enabling applications that benefit from higher sensitivity, precision, or absolute quantification. This seminar will explore dPCR and the following applications:

  • Rare mutation detection (otherwise known as looking for a needle in a haystack such as in cancer samples)
  • Virus & bacteria quantification and detection (getting an absolute count of pathogens detected)
  • Genetically modified organism detection (detecting a GMO seed where in places it shouldn’t be)
  • Next generation sequencing workflow optimization (accurately quantifying NGS libraries and validating sequencing results)
  • Reference standard quantification (developing a reference for your real‐time experiment when it doesn’t exist)

Registration is closed.

 

Refreshments will be provided to attendees.
